HP drivers causing CPU load?

We have a number of DL380s, mostly G5s, on which we've installed 64-bit Oracle Linux. We've noticed on two newly-built servers that there is a constant load average of around 1.03, even though there is absolutely nothing going on with them yet. They're not in production and no testing is being done on them. Running a top shows no processes running that are consuming any CPU time, so the thought is that it's a kernel problem. Does anyone know of any HP drivers that might be doing this? We do have ILO2 on all of these, so that's a common thread among them. I don't know how to troubleshoot this and could use any help offered. Thanks in advance.

Re: HP drivers causing CPU load?

Found it (finally) in another thread. Disabled cmasm2d and the load went away.
